Vehicle Blues (AKA Gabe Holcombe) picks up right from when I last heard him; on those great Bridgetown Records EPs that came out way back in 2010. His guitar playing has gotten more confident, pushing the songs from hazy, post-shoegaze territory to hazy, lo-fi indie rock territory. His songs are still just as effortlessly inviting as ever, murk and distortion never sounding this warm. At the same time Vehicle Blues' songs still maintain their Gothic edge, capturing a darker, or at least dower view of their world. See a track like "Sprayed Our Names at Every Station", about trying to leave one's mark on a world this While this contradiction should not work, the band's ability to despite of it is what makes the music so captivating. - The Creative Intersection
